Shaking

Even a quick look at the news today reveals there is a whole lot of shaking going on! The earth is shaking, volcanoes erupting, oil gushing into the ocean unchecked off our southern shores, global financial markets in a turmoil unlike any other time in our history and the list goes on. It would seem that almost everything that man typically puts his trust in is shaking right now.

Reminds me so much of one of my favorite hymns:

On Christ the Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Friends what have you put your trust in today? family relationships? money? career?  Be careful because these are all shaky ground as can be  seen in the world today!

There is only one place to put your trust that can never be shaken and that is in the solid rock – Jesus Christ!

Mathew 7: 25 -28 The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25.  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,

 
If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today is a good day to do it!  We have no guarantee of tomorrow – only this very second so please consider taking this important step  of asking Jesus to take His place on the throne of your heart today and then step out onto the Solid Rock!
 
Blessed beyond measure!

    Amen my sister. The Spirit of the Living God is speaking. And He is speaking in the earth, through the winds and the rains. Every word that He has spoken is coming to pass. Some people need to see it in order to believe it. Well take a look outside! And just like you said the news is revealing it all.

    For 2 Chronicles 4:14 lets us know: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    Be blessed my sister – love you

      Even the secular press is adding an olypse on the end of everything that happens – like apocolypse – time is really running out faster and faster. Time to be looking up for our redemption is drawing nigh!!! Love you too Tamara – love your notes – keep on speaking what the Lord desires you faithful woman of God!
